Récylum, the leading eco-organization on the collection and recycling of professional electrical and electronic waste with more than 700 members and half of the volumes collected in 2015, is approved by the government from 1 January 2016 for a new category of waste: professional electrical and electronic tools (category 6). In addition, Récylum has its approval renewed for categories 5 (lighting equipment), 8 (medical devices) and 9 (monitoring and control instruments). Récylum is the go-to eco-organization for professionals.
Recylum approved for the collection and treatment of professional power and electronic tools (category 6), an "orphan" category until now.
With the approval granted by the public authorities for the collection and treatment of Category 6 Pro DEEE, Récylum is strengthening its work in the professional world. Until now, this waste was not covered by the approval of an eco-organism (industrial cleaning equipment, small production/packaging machines, construction equipment, pumps, welding stations...). For several years, Récylum has forged strong links with building, industry, research and medical professionals, most of whom use these materials. It is therefore quite logical that Récylum has received the support of several trade unions representing manufacturers and users of power tools. Thus, the government considered that Récylum was the right partner to develop the collection of the waste concerned, estimated at more than 100,000 tons per year.
Recylum leader on the collection and recycling of DEEE Pro
By renewing and expanding The accreditation of Récylum, the government is strengthening the trust it already had in the eco-organization since 2012 for the collection and recycling of DEEE Pro. With the support of all stakeholders, Récylum confirms its leading position on the collection and recycling of electrical equipment from the building, medical and research. Of the 12,000 tonnes collected in 2014 by the 4 eco-organisms approved for professional DEEEs (Ecologic, Eco-Systems, ERP and Récylum), more than half were collected by Récylum.
With the DEEE Pros 500s with very different realities, the government has taken the decision to set collection targets specific to each category of used equipment. The first eco-organism to meet its regulatory targets for lamp collection, Récylum is on the verge of meeting the regulatory targets set for 2016 as early as 2015.
